  • If you are an international institution, you can change the default language for your entire account. This change will override any browser/OS language settings.

    Note: Users can select a preferred language in their user settings, which will override the account default.

  • The Global Activity Stream shows you important recent activities from all of your courses including announcements, discussions, assignments, and conversations. This stream is similar to the Course Activity Stream for an individual course.

    The following activities will cause notifications for each course to appear in the Global Activity Stream:

    • New Announcements
    • Replies to Announcements
    • New Discussions
    • New Discussion Posts
    • New Assignments
    • Assignments, Quizzes, or Discussions Changed from Ungraded to Graded
    • Due Date Changes to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions
    • New Graded Assignments
    • New Peer Review Assignments
    • New Conversation Messages

     

    Notes:

    • Notifications in the Global Activity Stream will not appear for activity in Files, Collaborations, Grades, Pages, or Conferences; ungraded quizzes and surveys; or edits to Discussions.
    • Edits to Quizzes and Assignments will only appear in the Global Activity Stream when the Notify users that this content has changed button has been selected in a course.
  • When you are enrolled in more than one Canvas course, you can customize the active courses you want to show in your Course list. Courses you want to show in the Courses drop-down menu are called favorite courses. You can favorite any published course that appears in the My Courses section on the course list page. Course favorites also display in the Dashboard.

    When no courses are favorited, the courses list automatically displays up to 20 courses alphabetically in the drop-down menu. However, once you have selected at least one course as a favorite, only your favorite courses will appear in the Courses list.

    Note: Courses are always listed alphabetically; you cannot reorder your courses manually.

  • After logging into Canvas, you can view your current courses. You may also be able to view past and future enrollment courses in Canvas.

    Note: Some institutions may restrict the option to view or access future enrollment courses before the start date and/or access concluded courses after the course has ended.

  • The Public Course Index allows all users within an institution to publicly view the institution’s course index in a catalog format. You can view a link to the Public Course Index on the My Courses page.

    Note: The Public Course Index is currently an account opt-in feature. If you cannot see the courses link, your institution has not enabled this feature. Learn how to include your course in the public course index.

  • If one of your courses includes a long or confusing name, you can create a nickname for your course to help you organize your Dashboard. Most courses are created using Student Information Systems (SIS) that generate course names based on terms, departments, and section numbers, and courses with similar names may be hard to distinguish.

    Course nicknames appear in the Dashboard, Course Navigation Menu, course breadcrumbs, and notification emails.

    A course nickname does not affect the course name at the account or course level; it only changes the name of the course for the individual user who created the nickname.

    If you need to know the original name of the course, you can hover over the nickname and the original name will appear. You can also restore the original name completely by deleting the nickname. Additionally, the course code is not affected and always displays on the course card for course reference.

    Note: This feature does not currently apply to the global Grades page and Dashboard sidebar elements such as the To Do list.

  • English is Canvas' language default, but you can choose to view the Canvas interface in another language.

    Note: Instructors have the option to change the language preference for their courses. If you observing a student in a course where the instructor has made this change (most often for a foreign language course), the course language will override the language in your user settings.
